Holyrood magazine, Scotland’s political and current affairs publication, recently interviewed GCU’s Vice Principal and Pro-Vice Chancellor for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Professor Lesley Sawers. The interview charts the career of one of Scotland's best-known businesswomen, referencing her time at the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) prior to taking up her new role to develop business, enterprise and innovation at the University.

Professor Sawers said: “The University is about looking at new forms of revenue, how we can grow our student base, internationalising the University and commercialising its work so that we can reinvest in the research and programmes we deliver. We operate like a social enterprise that uses knowledge and research to deliver for the common good. Now that’s compelling.”
